Holy smokes! Thanks for the hidden gems, Metron ... Only just discovered 'em.

Hidden in plain sight, psychological camouflage... :-X

The "Childhoods end" theory suggests a systematic multi-generation desensitization process through limited contact and repeated exposure through pop culture...if any of that makes any sense lulz

Makes perfect sense starting with:


Through:


And up to...


...and beyond...

Then we go all:


But end up with:

I just got my mitts on Whitley's novel "NEW". Not sure if I'll be able to review it as well as Metron did, but I guess I'm gonna try!

...

Maybe!

I'll look forward to reading your review, in whatever form you choose.

I saw the free download and decided to pass as fiction isn't on my radar of late. "The Messengers" is occupying my reading time with so many owls I may end up swiveling my own head!

Lol.

I wonder why he's giving it away for free.

I think he needs traction and listeners at this stage of his career.

Have you dipped into it yet, is it any good?

I haven't gotten very far into it. Fiction isn't my forte either, of late.

I wanna get A NEW WORLD though.

Honestly, I'd more highly commend you to Dr. Clarke's "Space Age Indians" in terms of a satisfying read, to say nothing of the variety of experiences and alien races involved.

I've spare time at best for fiction anymore.

I'm quite immersed in Mike Cleland's "The Messengers" now - owls have a LOT to teach us it seems...

Quote
As my words make clear, Clelland’s book is a very important one, and for several reasons: (A) the subject-matter is one which a lot of people in Ufology may have heard of, but which has not (until now) received the scrutiny it deserves; (B) the author is an integral part of the story, and is, therefore, in an ideal position to comment on it; (C) the book demonstrates that approaching and studying the UFO phenomenon purely from the “nuts and bolts” angle is as pointless as it is utterly misguided; and (D) The Messengers reveals time and again something that so many who have immersed themselves in the UFO enigma have come to realize. Namely, that the investigator often attracts the deep attention of the phenomenon and, as a result, becomes an integral part of the story. Arguably, the investigator even becomes the subject of significant manipulation.
